Finding Consumer Trends


The first FCT survey focused on the automotive category. The response was very positive with over 3,500 regional radio listeners completing the survey nationally.

National key insights:

  • 87% listen to radio in the car and is the most popular in-car activity
  • 71% of listeners selected AM/FM as the most important dashboard feature
  • 41% of listeners claimed radio is the most influential advertising medium
  • Just over half of these respondents are looking to purchase or lease a vehicle in the next year
  • Over 40% have cars that are eight years or older. These cars will most likely need to be replaced or repaired
  • ​Of over 30 car brands, Toyota and Holden are consistently the top two choices.
